That's a sizable investment. To insure you're not going to void the Michelin warranty you should read it to insure Michelin allows the procedure for those tires.

On edit; I went and looked it up. Here is what it says under "what is not covered"; The addition of liquid, solid or gaseous materials other than air, nitrogen or carbon dioxide.

I just had new Michelin put on our 2012 Phaeton. Old ones had sidewall cracking. Michelin gave us a 50% discount as they were less than five years old. Asked the tire shop how they balance the tires and they advised they very seldom do. He said with the larger tires and using a good manufacturer they normally do not need it. He was at least right on our coach as there is no indication of tire imbalance up to 70 MPH.

I'd have the front tires balanced. If you can tell the difference with the back balanced, let us know.

So I had my new Toyos. Spun balanced when they put them on the rv. Then one step further. Had them balanced on the rv. It balanced the whole front end. Not just the tires.

That is the right way to do it, I never believed in adding loose loose balls, sand or whatever to a tire in hopes that the stuff finds a good location. I have an on vehicle spin balancer.
